Intelligent heavy-duty BELAZ dump trucks: optimal solution to meet the challenges in mining
Extraction and transportation of natural resources is a heavy challenge and expensive one, especially when it is carried out in dangerous conditions and remote areas. In such a situation there is a solution that will help mining companies to secure the personnel, increase productivity and achieve greater efficiency, while keeping costs at a minimum. These are artificial intelligence technologies and intelligent BELAZ dump trucks. A multi-ton driverless vehicle doesn’t need a clean air and good visibility; it will precisely perform all the required operations in timely manner.
